For Survivors


TMF empowers veterans and families of fallen heroes to develop character in future generations.

  • Character Does Matter

    Character Does Matter empowers survivors to connect with youth in their communities and inspire them with stories of our nation’s fallen heroes. TMF Ambassadors challenge the next generation of leaders to join the “If Not Me, Then Who…” Movement and exhibit the qualities of courage, integrity, leadership and service exemplified by our nation’s fallen heroes.
